Diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease

Below is a fascinating email from Nancy who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. I have permission to post her email which tells an exciting story of recovery that emerged for her in a way she could have never imagined or predicted when she launched her journey down the road to recovery three years ago. .

Robert Rodgers PhD
Road to Recovery from Parkinsons Disease

I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease three years ago. Your book was a life-changer for me. I refused  to accept the diagnosis. I looked at each symptom and looked  for therapies  just as you described. I fought with the doctors and refused medication. I accepted that I had the symptoms but not the diagnosis.

I fought back some family members as well as a collective consciousness. Two neurologists and one family M.D. told me to stop fooling myself and accept the diagnosis. My Feldenkrais instructor who happens to be a neurologist suggested I see a neurosurgeon as I have a spinal cord injury in her professional opinion. Turns out she was right I went  in for surgery immediately and reversed all of my symptoms and he says I do not have Parkinson’s!

He also said there was a reason why my body refused the medication.  Interesting how had I taken  the meds I would’ve gone down a rabbit hole. My spinal cord injury dated back  10 years ago.  Symptoms started at three or four years ago. Lesson call and never, never, give up and listen to the innate  intelligence of your body.

I’m on the road to recovery. Thank you again, Robert The good work that you do! Happy Independence Day!

Best,

Nancy
